I heard yesterday that ISIS is, by far, the wealthiest terrorist organization in existence as a result of their looting of banks and refineries.

Not religion, one particular religion. 

No other religion today is responsible for anywhere close to the outrages you can read about almost daily, committed in the name of islam.

Re: Iraq 


Whenever people have killed in the name of religion, it's always been with the backdrop of a strong tribal or feudal system in a decentralized or autonomous region not under any laws but their own.

It happens to be Islam now. In the dark ages It was Christianity.

The key word is 'today'. It's probably been at least a week since the last Christian attack on Muslims in the Central African Republic.

Re: Iraq 


One of the big arguments between the Sunni and Shia concerns who succeeded Mohammed when he ascended to heaven. I can see why they are so upset, I ponder this question for most of the day.

World oil production is a delicate balance, and the removal of the Iraqi production from the equation will have a significant effect. The big question is whether the Saudis will make up the difference. Just another reason why we need to proceed with the Keystone pipeline and exploration/production in the USA, Canada, and Mexico. One real detriment to this is that our current administration's policy is to try to get oil prices high enough to achieve $6/gallon gasoline price. This is considered by them the magic threshold for energy conservation, electric cars, etc.

Damn straight, buddy.  And, if you disagree with me, I got something for your ice.

Leave it to the WC Christophobes to take a thread about Islamic violence and use it to disparage Christianity.
